What is your best friend's name and what makes them your best friend? Is there something about them that makes them stand out among all others?

I have 2 people that I consider my best friends. Carrie and Rob. They've never met. Carrie lives in California and Rob lives in New Jersey. Both are alway there for me, I have a good time with them, even if we're not doing anything. I can talk to them about anything at all and I'm completely comfortable around them. I met Carrie in middle school, and we hated each other. We were 2 of the 3 "new kids" in school that year and we were both competing for the friendship of the 3rd new kid. We even started a food fight (ok, SHE started it!) over it. Then the person we were competing for moved on halloween and that's how we became best friends. Ironically, when Rob and I met we didn't really like each other either. Not that we hated each other or anything. We both hung out with the same group of people, but hadn't met until he came over to discuss with the others the plans for an event called "Creation" which is (as far as I know) a Christian music festival with camping and all that good stuff. He asked if I was going and everyone in the room laughed then explained what it was and I was like "I think I'd spontaneously combust." After a few weeks and spending more time together we really got to know each other and became very close.

None really. I had a good friend untill iwas 13. After that he dropped out of the school and i never could trace him. At 16 i joined another school and at 18 University. So never had long time to spend withs ome one. First year in the univ was ahell for me so i started beingvery careful with people and that never made me very close to anyone. Now with the hectic job u can'y make a best friend. No dount i have lots of good friends, but i can't claim anyone the best.

Ana and Joana are my best friends. We have been freinds from our school days when we were in 4 grades. Since then we have been together. I just love them. They are me best freinds since we are so alike. We share same thoughts and I think they are simply the best. We have always been there for eachother.

Lucky you to have such a blessing to have 3 best friends..people whom you can always go to when your heart is heavy or whne you need a shoulder to lean on. Real friends are few and far between. Sorting through all the people we know and finding those we call friends can be a task.

Name of my best friend is sheen. I added shaukat with her name and now I became sheenshaukat at mylot. Devotion, understanding and love made him my best friend. He thinks as I think. He is computer and book lover, he is nice and noble. He is a bit naughty but I think he has every thing I wanted in my best friend. He is matching person.

Great going in finding such a wonderful friend in Sheen:) Sounds like you really love your friend and allow him to be himself and respect him for the things he does and likes..true friends are alike but also have some differences;)

His name is "Ric". We've been friends for almost 30 years and that's so I guess we're so alike in so many ways. We've come to that point in our friendship that we can pick up on each others thoughts with just a look or even out think or anticipate the other reaction in a given situation. There is such an emotional bond between us that we're come to be like twins. People often make fun of us asking if we're a couple. It's sad though that our wives aren't as close to each other as Ric and I are.

I would say with a friendship like that and with being friends so long ..and being able to guess each other's thoughts etc..that you two would be classified as soul mates.. There is such a close bond that is formed between soul-mates..much deeper then that of regular friendship.. I pray you have 30 more years and more if life affords you this.

I have had a couple of "best friends" while growing up but today, I only have one best friend. Throughout my childhood, I have went through many different stages in my life and these people were always there for me. As we grew older, our lives shifted and so did we. We began having our own families and unfortunately the time we spent together started to fade as well. Today, the only best friend that I can honestly say that I have is my mother. She's the only one that I could call on at any given time and I know that she would be there. She is the one that I want to call first when I have any kind of news that I would like to share. I love her for believing in me at times that I didn't believe in myself!

Mine are five - Janet,Victoria,Christina,Polly and Rossy. They're my best friends because they had proved themselves through all of the years.I trust them and they trust me.I can't lie to them and they can't to me. They're the only people who uderstand me and I understand them. I can always receive help for whatever there is.
